'Alternative' security conference set to return
Jake Wallace, who was involved in organising the last conference -- which is regarded in some circles as the Australian equivalent of the Defcon "hacker" security conference in the United States -- said the conference would be back next year.
However, the organisers have not determined an exact date for the event.
"That's still up for discussion. [The last conference] was mid-semester for uni students. It also conflicted with the CanSecWest security conference, which we lost a few speakers to," Wallace said.
He says finding a venue for Ruxcon 2 won't be an issue. UTS have already offered to host the event for a second time.
"UTS were quite happy to hold it again... after the first conference," he said.
He said the organisers were exhausted after the last event.
"At the end of it we just needed a sleep," he said.
